Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team Unveils 2011 Ninja ZX-10R Racer

The all-new Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R race bike has been unveiled to the international press at the Nurburgring racetrack, in advance of the full launch of the production machine in early October.

The new Ninja ZX-10R race bike has been eagerly anticipated by everyone involved in the Superbike racing project for a while now and therefore the Kawasaki Superbike Racing Team are extremely keen to get started with the new Ninja ZX-10R.

Steve Guttridge, the Race Planning Manager from Kawasaki Motors Europe, said of the new bike and the timing of the 'sneak preview' of the racebike version of the Ninja ZX-10R, "The new race bike has been eagerly anticipated by everyone involved in the Superbike racing project for a while now. The PBM team have evolved and restructured continuously in order to be in a position to utilise the new bike's potential to the maximum next season. As you can imagine the Paul Bird team are ultra keen to get started with it and so who better than the team itself to help us show the first edition of the race version of it here at the Nurburgring?"

Ichiro Yoda, the Kawasaki Project Director, confirmed that racing is at the heart of the new machine's DNA. "We have started development this bike with slick tyres and racing spec engine. This is a quite different procedure than previous models."

The next chance the world's media will have to get close to this exciting new machine again will be at official unveiling of the production model, at the Cologne show in early October.
